Tom is looking at Bonefish in this episode, one of his favourite best species to catch on a fly. Tom starts by examining where Bonefish reside, their feeding habits and how the tides affect their movements and behaviour. Tom's on a flat in the Bahamas, fishing an area he hasn't been to before but by using his knowledge of Bonefish is able to find the right areas to focus on. Smaller fish tend to be found in large schools, with the bigger fish either alone or in small pods and Tom shows us how best to spot them in various conditions. Tom talks us through various Bonefish fly patterns and the different weights you'll need them in before going through the rods, reels, lines and leaders to use. Next we learn how tp present the fly to Bonefish, strike, play and release the fish quickly. Andros guide, David Nemour explains how he studies the fishes reaction to the fly to determine how close to cast to them as sometimes they need it in front of their noses and other times they will move some distance to take it. Tom talks through retrieves that works before going into detail about playing fish. Good casting is critical to success with Bonefish and Pete Kutcher give some invaluable tips on casting accurately to Bonefish.
